LEAD ACTRESS COM­EDY

Los Angeles Times - - THE ENVELOPE -

Pamela Ad­lon, “Bet­ter Things” Ju­lia Louis-Drey­fus, “Veep” Jane Fonda, “Grace and Frankie” Al­li­son Jan­ney, “Mom” El­lie Kemper, “Un­break­able Kimmy Sch­midt” Tracee Ellis Ross, “black-ish” Lily Tom­lin, “Grace and Frankie”

Win­ner: Louis-Drey­fus

Analysis: Yes, Louis-Drey­fus has won five straight years for each and ev­ery sea­son of “Veep.” Yes, she has more Emmy wins in this cat­e­gory than any other woman. Yes, one more Emmy will tie her with Cloris Leach­man for most Emmy act­ing wins. Yes, she cur­rently has seven, as does fel­low nom­i­nee Jan­ney. No, Jan­ney’s pres­ence in this cat­e­gory will not keep Louis-Drey­fus from win­ning an­other Emmy. (It’s “Mom’s” only nod.) In con­clu­sion: Un­til Louis-Drey­fus loses, you’d be crazy to pick against her.
